    The way the bill is worded essentially allows any employer to exempt himself from the rule based on "Religious or MORAL" objections.

    Now the left have ammunition. This is stupid to the ninth degree. Anyone can claim some bogus moral issue to avoid offering coverage. Why? WHY?!

    We had the upper hand and this stupid stunt gives it right back to the left. So fucking stupid. We don't run our country based on individual supposed moral beliefs. We function off of laws and rules.

    I just don't get it. This law if passed would open up businesses and insurance companies to a barrage of lawsuits.

    The worst thing about this stupid bill is it will turn a religious debate into the very debate the democrats wanted. We don't have the votes to pass this bill, nor should we. So we yet again, like the last round of payroll tax cut debates, so we essentially shot ourselves in the damn foot.

    The only way to deal with these issues and mandates is to take it to the people. Win seats on the merits of the debate. THEN change the laws

    Mike Huckabee supported the same bill when he was governor. Some Republican states even mandated the church pay. It's only when the black guy does it that it's wrong.

    What Blunt introduced was a stump-speech in an attempt to garner votes.

    Just another beautiful example of what I dubbed earlier today as the Republican rightward death spiral.

    Maybe we can pull together an all-male panel to talk about it.

    He may not get mine now. These stupid games may cost us. If they do. I put it on him.

    As far as I'm concerned this was a debate worth having and one we could have won. But stunts like this are counter productive. NOTHING could be gained from this bill, NOTHING

    So, where was Blunt when Republicans mandated the same contraception rule as Obama's for their states?
